Recipe for Today's Battery Materials: Long Range and Life, Affordability

In order to thrive in today's economy there are many things an electric vehicle must have. A long battery range, affordability, and extended life cycle are among them. BASF has extensive experience working with high nickel cathode materials, which have higher energy storage and longer life cycle capabilities. Along with cost improvements in battery pack construction and battery management systems, the use of nickel cathode materials also provides an opportunity for automakers to reduce costs. Major auto OEMs are now able to take advantage of emerging technology to create more capable batteries to meet the growing needs of the EV market.
